For the newborn, the finest toy is you-his mother. He enjoys being cuddled and likes looking at you and loves to pay attention to your voice. It is through you that he learns about the humankind around him.
Nevertheless, a baby needs other enthusiasm. Toys are the most excellent way of giving the much needed excitement to the babies. The best toys for a baby in his first six months are those designed to wake up and, then, sharpen his sense of sight, sound and touch. He will be attached to bright rattles, colored discs and mobiles. It is not that rough to make your own mobiles and give it to the baby to have fun. Dangle no matter which that’s vivid, shiny and amusing on ribbons or nylon threads, and ties them to clothes hangers, embroidery hoops or plain sticks.
The skill level of the baby can be well developed by giving him the wanted toys. Also give him objects of diverse textures to handle, such as a small ball, a rattle, a piece of sponge, soft toys stuffed with cotton etc. Use objects which can be washed and which are out of harm's way.
When the baby is six months old, he will show symptoms and be able to be pleased about books with pictures of familiar objects in them. He will get pleasure from your turning the pages for him. Children at this age like being spoken to, will try to vigorously communicate with you and will try to imitate your movements. He likes to sway or clap to recognizable songs and rhymes. He likes to be delighted, and enjoys playing hide and seek.
